Signup for the Norwalk Citizens’ Police Academy
I want to make you aware that the Norwalk Police will, once again, host the popular six-week long Norwalk Citizens’ Police Academy course.
The six-week course begins on Thursday, Sept. 14, and is scheduled to meet twice a week from 7 to 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
Participants will meet and discuss current issues with veteran officers, view demonstrations on techniques and training methods used by the department, and go on a ride-along with an on-duty officer.
Space is limited and advance registration is required. For more information, or to register, please contact Norwalk Police Lt. Terry Blake at 203-854-3074.
I am disappointed and angry with President Trump’s action to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Like many Americans, I am tired of the constant barrage of hateful policies and statements coming from the White House.
Forcing these kids into the shadows of our society instead of embracing them as productive members of our communities, our colleges and our workforce is a calculated political maneuver designed to further divide the nation. I’ve met many Dreamers and feel the administration’s decision is simply un-American.
I hope my colleagues–Democrats and Republicans–will stand with me and our immigrant communities in opposition to the repeal of DACA.
